In Like A Lion

I want my kids biological and educational to think I’m a lion

                                and that I never would.

I want to light fires in minds and lighten loads too.

I want to change minds and seating arrangements.

I want to ban raising hands and homelessness.

I want to eat lunch with the students and occasionally my words.

I want to communicate through social media and more clearly.

I want time to read more books and read a room.

I want to go on fighting for students and on record.

I want my words to show the way and sometimes love.

I want to hold their attention and sometimes my values close.

I want to inspire the future and good belly laughs.
I want to be a lion  and a champion.

Thanks to @brianrozinsky cast-of-characters.blogspot.com for not only teaching me about zeugma, but encouraging me via social media to keep blogging.

I am participating in the Slice of Life challenge to write and publish a post every day in March.
Slice of Life is hosted by Two Writing Teachers. I thank them for the community they provide. Read more slices here.

  1. A moment after I plunged in reading, I thought: zeugma! Thrilled to see the fun you had running with this idea. The fifth one is my favorite 🙂

  2. Love this structure. The See Saw pattern stood out to me and really worked with the ideas you were balancing. Belly laughs was my favorite — since you have such a great laugh and smile! I don’t know what zeugma is — but I will check it out.

    This is amazing! I’ve never heard of zeugma, but of course I just had to google it. The way you joined your phrases together is brilliant. Love this! Well done!

    Thank you for spreading the awareness of zeugma! It was a new term to me – such a playful structure and cognitively challenging!
